The story behind the Scandinavian Cruiser name.
Here is what Wikipedia says:
"A cruiser is a large type of warship, which had its prime period from the late 19th century to the end of the Cold War. The first cruisers were intended for individual raiding...."
This is a definition which a Viking has no problem with!
“Cruising around” also has connotations with pleasurable sunny weather day-sailing and relaxed coastal exploring.
The name "Skerry Cruiser" is a phonetical approximation of the Swedish name "Skärgårdskryssare" or Danish name "Skaergaardskrydser", both of which sounds a little bit like “Skerry Cruiser”, and it is no doubt how the English name came about, but it actually means "shoal cruiser", referring to the protruding rocks off the coast of the Baltic Sea. To really confuse all of us, the Danish word "krydser" means not only a "cruiser" type of boat, but also "crossing" or "tacking upwind".
For all of the above reasons, we had to name our new boats "Scandinavian Cruisers".
